Does anyone know where I can get chestnut flour in NYC?

    Did you check Whole Foods?

      I saw it at Buon Italia on Friday. I've also seen it sold in bulk at International Grocery (9th Ave & 40th St), but I don't know how fast it turns over.

        Kalustyan's has had it in their refrigerated case any time I've been looking for it. Good idea to keep it cold as it can go off.

          I've heard that it goes off fairly quickly but on the other hand, I was surprised to see a "use by" date well in the future on the packaged flour at Buon Italia. (I forget how far exactly but I'm pretty sure it was into 2011.) I guess I might be more wary of bulk or undated flour, but to me it suggested it's not quite as fragile as some make it out to be.

          Fwiw, it was about $7/lb at Buon Italia; I've never looked for it at Kalustyan's but I suspect it's more expensive there. It's been a long time since I bought it at International Grocery, but it was pretty cheap, at least at the time.
